Y’all. It’s 7 weeks until my dude date! Seriously…I know how we got here, but holy cow. Thanksgiving, Christmas (maybe New Years) and then baby! Eek. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous at all!

Fortunately, I’d done this rodeo a couple times, so hopefully, I will remember tricks and tips to save me when in the newborn-sleep-induced haze that tends to effect all new moms. But, I won’t promise that I will be dressed to impress or have the cleanest hair!

One thing I know that will save me some sanity and help me gain a little time is the Graco Little Lounger™.

It is both a rocking seat and a vibrating lounger. Two motions/actions that newborn babies love. And, you can adjust the incline angle with a multitude of recline positions to find the perfect angle for you baby. My girls are typically colicky, and refluxy, so I have a feeling they will be sleeping, resting, rocking and vibrating at the highest angle. It also has a 3-point harness to keep baby secure. 

While my little munchkin is being soothed, I can take those 15 minutes or so (let’s be optimistic and call it 30 minutes) and have a nice hot shower or maybe release some tension with some simple and easy mom-friendly yoga stretches. Meryl from Sacred Thread Yoga showed us several that we could do in the comfort of our own homes, either in a chair or standing up on the wall. 

We stretched out our chest and arms (from holding a baby and feeding a baby)

If you’ve had a baby (or are working on one), you know that you sleep in weird positions, and your body gets out of whack, so these very simple moves that can be done in 15 minutes can really help out. And we stretched out our hips from those 9+ months of growing and changing.

It was amazing how quiet a room full of 15 adults and several kids got during our 15 minute break while the baby was being soothed by the Little Lounger. 

And, when your baby is awake, and has three siblings playing with her (of course, a real baby would be secured with the 3-point harness), should you want to transform the rocker into a stationary lounger, you just flip the two Rock Locks™ and those wonderful siblings can’t rock baby anymore! (Oh my goodness…my house is going to be crazy!!!)

Should those siblings actually leave her alone, when she gets a little older, there is a toy bar with two soft toys keeps baby entertained. And, with the push of a button, and squeezing it together, it folds up compactly for travel or storage.

The Graco Little Lounger™ is safe for infants up to 30 pounds. However, it’s important to keep an eye on their developmental queues as you wouldn’t want them in the lounger once they are able to sit up.

I’m excited for the day we bring home our little girl and I set this up right next to our bed (in place of a bassinet). I used one with E in the same way, and it is definitely on my list of “must haves” for new babies and moms!

    Hmmm, that looks handier then the swing AND bouncy chair AND cradle! Wish I’d have seen this 32 months ago! Folding up would mean I could bring it up and down the stairs easier too… Oh and up off the floor ans away from the dog hair! Looks cool. Whats the price point?

    1. No kidding! I love that it folds up and doubles as so much. It is $74.99-$79.99.

  2. That lounger looks very comfortable. I wish they came in adult sizes, too! Wishing you the best of luck with these last few weeks of pregnancy, Krystyn.

  3. I love that it is soo portable!! I have the older version and absolutely loved it!

  4. I cannot wait to use my Graco Little Lounger either! I didn’t have anything like this with my older son, so it will be fun to see how useful this is. Plus, I could definitely use 15 minutes to myself once the baby is here!

  5. These are great tips for new/expecting mothers! Thanks for sharing (:

  6. That is a great lounger! I love the yoga poses too, I’ll definitely pass that info along to my pregnant friends and family!

  7. I want one! Graco should do a give away 🙂 Do they sell these in stores yet? I want to tell one of my expecting friends to register for this and not the ‘monkey’ one since this does so much more. One day someone will get smart and make this stuff in adult sizes. I would love to drift off to sleep being rocked and vibrated.

  8. This sounds like a great product. One I would have loved to have when my kids were babies. When I had my son my saving grace was his bouncy chair. It could bounce and vibrate. I would lose my mind when the batteries died.

  9. It looks like you are very well prepared for when your new baby arrives!

    They surely have come up with some great quality baby items since you were a baby. I think every new Mom needs one of these – great video too. You are a natural.

  11. So nice! I wish we had one when my son was a baby! This would’ve made our lives so much easier!

  12. A swing/rocker/bouncer is SO handy, especially during meal time when you need both arms for cooking!

  13. I like this model looks very comfy for baby. Nice size to fit up next to the bed too to keep baby close by!

    Congrats on your upcoming bundle of joy!

    I wish this lounger was around when my daughter was born. She was colicky and totally needed some soothing–as did I 😉

  15. This is such an improvement over the bouncy seat! I am like lalamommy, my bouncy seat was a lifesaver for me with my babies.

  16. What a cool device! With this was around for my kiddos. We have 6, but the youngest is 3, and we’re done now. Don’t be scared, the more kids you have, the easier it gets. 😉

  17. Nicole Heffernan says:

    I have been thinking about something like this when I have my next child. It looks great!

  18. Lauren O. says:

    I wish I had one of these when my daughter was smaller…she would not sleep in her crib but she always fell asleep in her swing or bouncer so this seems like it would have been a good idea. Will keep it in mind if I ever have baby #2

  19. Awww pre-congrats on your baby girl! This sounds like a wonderful product for moms. My cousin is expecting, I am totally going to have to pick one of these up for her!

  20. That looks like a great item to have once the baby arrives! And your event looks like a lot of fun too.

  21. I would LOVE one those. I am 26 weeks pregnant with my fourth baby and this would be perfect. Very cool.

  22. This is so cute. I wish i had one when my kids were little.

  23. Graco little lounger looks like a wonderful tool for new moms. Wish they had been around when I had little ones. Could make a great baby shower gift for one of my many pregnant friends.

  24. congrats on the new arrival! i would have LOVED this thing when my kids were babies.

    its probably not a valid reason to get hubby to say yes to baby #4 right?
    🙁

    ps you are the 2nd krystyn i’ve known

    1. I think it’s a totally valid reason!

      And, are you sure I’m not the same Krystyn, just with a different alias? Okay, probably not. I’ve met one other one online:)

  25. Oh, now that looks amazing!!! Why didn’t I see this 8 months ago when my twins were born?! I could have used 15 minutes, heck even 10!

  26. This lounger seems like it’s designed so well- you can use it for quite a while with baby for a bunch of different purposes. That’s a good buy!

  27. Graco is great – that’s who we used…can’t go wrong with anything they make – Happy DUDE Day!!!

  28. Just bought a little lounger as a shower gift, glad to hear such a great review!!
